Default Porter Cable 690 D handle router

I picked up a Porter Cable 690 D Handle Router. It works fine, but has not had great care. Any ideas on how to clean the exterior of the thing up? Any things not to use on the metal parts?

Thanks

Hi SB

GRAVITY FEED BLASTER GUN
http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=93221

I made one like the one below but it's bit over kill for you I think
but it works great for cleaning up metal parts like Alum...makes them look like new.

Hi SB

Yep they work, you can get many types of sand,cork,hard rubber,etc. the one I use is very fine silicon sand,,,it makes things look like new, then if you want them to have a high closs you can buff them out with a buffing wheel that fits your grinder.. 6" wheel..
.I put on a Big trash bag poke a hole or two put on a face shield and a base ball hat and get with it, they do make a mess and I do it out side most of the time...
I should note you can find the 5 gal. ones in auto parts store they work but you must have a big compressor they need to suck up the sand out of the 5 gal. can.
